triangle Script 대본 Texto

So, a week went by and I decided not to call her.

So, you're not gonna call her? You went from 'I think I'm in love with you' to 'I'm not gonna call her'?

I wasn't in love with her, okay? I was briefly in love with the abstract concept of getting married. It had absolutely nothing to do with Robin. Robin?


Look who I ran into.

Since when do you guys know each other?

Oh, since about here. Lily recognized me from the news ... Hello, sailor.

They just got engaged.

Well, I should get back to the station. See you guys. Nice seeing you, Ted.

Yeah, you, too.


Damn it!


I'm in love with her.

No. As your sponsor, I will not let you relapse. You blew it. It's over. Move on.

I don't know. I just have this feeling she's the future Mrs. Ted Mosby.


Lily, you squeaked? She said something about me, didn't she? Come on, spill it, Red.

Fine. So, what do we think of Ted?

Ted's something else.

Huh? I'm gonna spin that as good. Lots of guys are something, I'm something else.

He comes on a little strong.

But that's part of my charm.

But that's part of his charm.

Oh, totally. I mean, he's sweet, he's charming, he's just looking for something a little bit more serious than I am. I mean, the most I can handle right now is something casual. This just stays between us, right?

Are you kidding? This flapper, Fort Knox. Oops.

She wants casual? Okay, I'll be casual. I'm gonna be a mushroom cloud of casual. You know why? 'Cause it's a game. I wanted to skip to the end and do the whole happily-ever-after thing, but you don't get there unless you play the game.

So you gonna ask her out?

Yeah. No! I can't ask her out, because if I ask her out I'm asking her out. So how do I ask her out without asking her out?

Did you guys get high?

I got it. I don't ask her out. I invite her to our party next Friday.

We're having a party next Friday?

We are now. Casual.

Yeah, 'cause nothing says 'casual' like inviting a hundred people over just to mack on one girl. Oh, and Lily, that's my leg.

You waited five minutes to tell me that?

All right, so call her up.

No, calling's not casual. I just got to bump into her somewhere. Now, if only I knew her schedule, I could arrange a chance encounter.

That's great, Ted. You'll be the most casual staIker ever.

I'm in love with you (4)
